Program Changes Due to COVID-19 Virus

IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING OUR RISING STARS PROGRAMS:

Governor Cuomo recently prohibited gatherings of 500+ people, and mandated reducing capacity at gatherings of fewer than 500 people to a maximum of 50%.  As a result of this, and in order to ensure we are taking all necessary precautions to protect our children and families, we are making the following changes with our upcoming productions.  Please read our current plan carefully – with the understanding that there could be further changes down the road.  We will certainly stay in touch regarding any adjustments.  

  1. ALL REHEARSALS and AUDITIONS are suspended until further notice.
  2. OUR PRODUCTION OF RENT will be POSTPONED until MAY.
  3. OUR PRODUCTION OF FROG & TOAD might be postponed by a week or two (depending on when we get back to rehearsals) and the production will be moved to the MPR – where we will have a moveable set along with lighting and sound  – creating an additional theatrical performance space!
  4. OUR PRODUCTION OF IT’S EASY will be POSTPONED until the Fall.  In its place, for our 10-12 year olds, we will do a concert version of the musical “13.”
  5. OUR PRODUCTION OF THE OUTSIDERS is indefinitely POSTPONED. Information for this show will be forthcoming once we identify the specific details for the aforementioned production dates.

Please do not hesitate to reach out with questions.  We know there will be many.

Our goal is to be able to continue to provide this outlet for the children – and we will resume as quickly as possible.
